The Black Lion Hotel

Reviewed June 24, 2013

Very friendly staff, couldn't have been more helpful. Rooms were basic and mine was noisy at the front of the hotel. Food on the whole was good, not sure what the apple crumble was all about?
Good ale, good location.

We stopped here for 2 nights mid June 2013 and found it an excellent base for a walking group. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were comfortable and clean and the beer was probably the best in Richmond. We booked meals on both nights and were provided with our own table in the restaurant. The food was well cooked and just right after our long days walks around Swaledale.
Parking was no problem and the pub is right in the middle of Richmond itself.

We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had x4 twin rooms and no-one had any complaints.

Excellent friendly service, good food, small but comfortable rooms with decent beds, and a choice of good beers at the bar. Good quality Inn in the centre of Richmond with car parking and bike storage. Ideal for local attractions.

i had my 50th birthday at the black lion. We booked several rooms and Kem and Karen set up a snug room and an especially decorated table for 14 of us. They did the food exactly how we asked and the service was brilliant - friendly, efficient and not fussy. We all had a great evening and a fantastic stay. A brilliant stop off for those of us doing the Coast to Coast Walk and for anyone who wants to celebrate a special occasion. Highly recommended, with a great breakfast the morning after.

We turned up unannounced and a room was quickly found for us. They even have a car park at the back. Although it was on the top floor, which was a bit of a mission with the suitcase, the room was lovely with a good sized bathroom. Loved the uneven floors and creaky floorboards!
We ate in the restaurant and the food and ambience were lovely. We would highly recommend this place.
